A Quote from a Recent UK Government Report on Privacy

“Privacy is an essential prerequisite to the exercise of individual freedom, and its erosion weakens the constitutional foundations on which democracy and good governance have traditionally been based in this country.”

From a 132-page report, A Democratic Licence To Operate, which Nick Clegg commissioned last year in the wake of revelations by the US whistleblower Edward Snowden. The full report is available at https://www.rusi.org/news/ref:N55A40513857F8/#.VaREe6Zzc22.
